Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has informed Nigerians that he is not promising them he will solve all problems in the country if elected in 2023.
Obi disclosed this as a guest at the Editors’ Forum, organised to deepen democracy by the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) in Ikeja Lagos.
However, he promised to be an effective communicator to Nigerians.

“I am not promising you that I will do everything right or solve every problem of Nigeria. But in those situations that I cannot provide a ready answer or defies my solution process, I will tell you Nigerians because what causes breach of trust and misunderstanding is when a leader doesn’t communicate with the people.”
Addressing the issue of not having his manifesto in soft or hard copy, the former Anambra state governor urged Nigerians not to worry because the country does not lack written documents.
“How to solve our problems is the issue because we have always lacked the implementation.
“Before I became Anambra State governor, there had been committees, councils, and commissions on education reforms at the primary and secondary schools. While they all recommended that the mission schools should be returned to the missions, no government implemented it.
“But I was the one, without any such cumbersome processes, that made it happen. We need implementation, not volumes of documents that will at last not be put to use. Simple.”
